Here in Italy there's a total psychosis about the Corona Virus, so I made a character based on it.
Corona Virus in italian is litteraly translated in "CROWN VIRUS", so I had to put a couple of crowns in it (once is the armor).
The hair are like flames to connect to the idea of the fever.
The textures he's wearing are made with snake skin. This detail and the bat-wing like right arm are a quote to the animals that passed the virus to the humans.
The war mace he's holding is shaped like the actual virus

I decided to put almost no color, I like the "illness" feeling this greens gives to the image, I just painted a little red tones and a little yellow lights, just to give him a little more visual strenght
